Craig Milverton has graced thousands of stages throughout the Europe and the USA with his own ensembles and with notably trumpeter Digby Fairweather, BBC radio’s blues programme presenter Paul Jones and American saxophonist Scott Hamilton. His style is unique yet lyrical with a heavy rhythmic inference. We’re delighted that he’ll be presenting his own selection of favourite pieces for quartet including ben Holder (violin), Paul Jefferies (double bass) and Charlie Stratford (drums).

We’re really excited to be introducing multi-reeds player Ollie Weston to you. Ollie is one heck of a fine saxophonist – he has a muscular tone, melodic approach and fiendish technique! Known especially as a performer with the London Jazz Orchestra, Back to Basie and Sax Appeal as well as numerous recording credits as a session player with jamie Cullum, Amy Winehouse, Island records and Stornaway. He’s also head of sax at London’s Guildhall School of Music & Drama and has written extensively about jazz harmony and the art of saxophone playing. With Ben Holder (piano), Paul Jefferies (bass) and Nick Millward (drums) he presents an evening of music devoted to the music of Duke Ellington.

Tom Kincaid’s Jazz Standards Trio

(piano, violin, & double bass)

 Screen Shot 2015-11-08 at 13.53.33

One of the finest pianists in the UK, club favourite Tom returns to play a swathe of jazz standards that he loves. Tom’s playing can reflect a myriad of jazz styles, one minute sounding like Teddy Wilson (Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald) and the next you’ll hear the close harmony chords reminiscent of the great Bill Evans – throughout his playing there’s a lightness of touch and effortless dexterity that defies traditional technique. So, with Ben Holder on violin and vocals and Paul Jefferies playing double bass we’re pretty well assured of a melodic, humorous and dynamic brace of sets.
